Book overview: How hard can raising chickens be? So many things to learn and find out. But why do it the easy way? You’ll laugh at this true story of a city gal’s adventure in her first crack at chicken farming.

About the author: Sandra Hammond grew up mostly in the Los Angeles area until moving to Arizona for seven years with her husband Chris. After earning a teaching credential in Elementary Education at Northern Arizona University, she and her family moved back to Southern California. She now lives in Ventura County with her husband and three children. She has been working as a substitute teacher for over thirteen years in the Conejo Valley, from pre-school to jr. high. Sandra enjoys mountain biking, hiking, camping, and writing. She has twelve chickens, one named Cinderella, that inspired her to write her first book The True Story of Cinderella. Her dream is to raise chickens on a small farm some day in Colorado while continuing her writing career and working with children. Her second book, A Day with Duke, is available now. Her third book, Thieves in the Night will be out in the fall of 2011!
